We The People of the United States…by AFVet

BurkeEdmund Burke once stated that….

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

Patriots abound in this Great Country.

Men and Women that have served Her in the Armed Forces and those that are passionate in keeping Her and the principles of our Constitution as a guide and a beacon for Freedom.

Ronald Reagan said She was the “Shining City on the Hill.”

Yes She is and will continue to be as long as the Patriots mount an opposition to the nefarious undertakings the present administration deems necessary to force Her into a socialistic society.

Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard.

Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen.

Veterans of foreign wars.

Wars that will never be forgotten.

Recent wars that still plague US with the devastation that our mighty warriors have had to sustain, and live with for the rest of their lives along with their families and loved ones.

The men and the women that volunteered to serve this Country are the true Heroes of today, and they are going to be the ones that take Her back from the cliff that She is perched upon.

The men and the women that were true Patriots did not shy away from their duty.

The men and the women that are true Patriots have a challenge ahead of them.

Let’s meet the challenge head on and see what true Patriotism can accomplish.

You may be very surprised what a concerted effort can do.
It is beginning.

We The People of the United States of America,…….

America in Retreat

FLAG-IN-DISTRESS

Obama puts America in Dire Distress

President Obama’s Forward 2012 Campaign has led this Country back to the days of a pre World War 2  economy and Depression.

His Middle East Policies have led us into a retreat world wide unlike anything we have ever seen before.  One has to wonder if the stage is being set for World War 3.

-From Fox News we get this report-

State Department urges American citizens to leave Yemen amid terror threat

The State Department on Tuesday ordered all non-essential personnel to leave the U.S. Embassy in Yemen and urged all American citizens currently in that country to depart following the threat by Al Qaeda that has triggered temporary shutdowns of 19 American diplomatic posts across the Middle East and Africa.

The department said in a travel warning that it had ordered the departure of non-emergency U.S. government personnel from Yemen “due to the continued potential for terrorist attacks” and said U.S. citizens in Yemen should leave immediately because of an “extremely high” security threat level.

“As staff levels at the Embassy are restricted, our ability to assist U.S. citizens in an emergency and provide routine consular services remains limited and may be further constrained by the fluid security situation,” the travel warning said. The U.S. Embassy is located in Sanaa, the capital of Yemen.

Benghazi: Obama’s (Bump in the Road) that just won’t go away!

download

I don’t know the author of this poem … received it today.  Very thought provoking and poignant.  I do recall, however, the President referring to the Benghazi incident as
“A Bump in the Road.” 
Today I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives.  
At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes. 
He then thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not. 
He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair.
The poem was written by a Marine Corps Officer (ANONYMOUS).
obama holder hillary in charge of everything and yet responsible for nothing
I think this is the feeling of the general population and it should be pursued until something is done with the incompetent Obama staff involved who literally sat there in the White House and watched their execution on live streaming video and did absolutely nothing!

Who is Voting American’s Samiam60?

I am a simple every day American who loves his Country and the Freedoms it affords us all.

I am an ” American ” free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country.

This Heritage of Freedom I Pledge to Uphold

I will fight this fight with all that is within me and I hope that many of you will join with me in preserving the wonderful Heritage of Freedom given to us all by God and our Founding Fathers and all those Brave Souls who fought to keep us Free.

Remembering when the expression Happy New Year actually meant something

A message to America from the

Grey-Haired Brigade

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time.

We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We have worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and grown old together.

Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone
party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag.

We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner, America, and America the Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress in 2008. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.”

You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you did like it after all.

You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as Patriotism.

Many of you fell for the Great Lie yet again in 2012 and are now having some buyer’s remorse as you should.

With all the education we gave you these past four years, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank more of the  Kool-Aid.

Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom.

This is what you voted for again and this is what you got.

We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for Entitlements and a Free Ride.

This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid.

It belongs to We the People and  We the People plan to Reclaim our land and our Freedom. We hope that next time, if there is one, you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.

So if you ever have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance again, stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor Our Country, and Apologize to America and the

President Obama Gets Owned by a 95 Year Old Pearl Harbor Survivor

Remembering the Pearl Harbor Attack on the 71st Anniversary 1941-2012

A Sleeping Giant is Awakened

Let US Never Forget

Here is a Letter a 95 Year Old Pearl Harbor Survivor wrote to President Obama

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year.  People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate.  Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt and direct even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.
You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:
” We’re no longer a Christian nation
” America is arrogant”

– (Your wife even
announced to the world,” America is mean-
spirited. ” Please tell her to try preaching
that nonsense to 23 generations of our
war dead buried all over the globe who
died for no other reason than to free a
whole lot of strangers from tyranny and
hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you.

 To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British?  Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War?  I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination.  You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American.  If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue .  You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts , who was putting up a fight?  You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing.  I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son.  Do your job.  When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him.  But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out.  The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.
You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy.  That’s not our greatest threat.  Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.
And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle…

Sincerely,
Harold B. Estes

Is it any wonder we call them

“The Greatest Generation”

http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/haroldestes.asp

When a 95 year old Hero of  “The Greatest Generation” Stands Up and Speaks Out like this, I think we owe it to him to share his words with as many Americans as we can.

Don’t Let The Liberals Re-Write This History!

My Fellow American Patriots and Friends. I would like to Honor this Wonderful Veteran in every way I can and hope that everyone will re-post his letter in emails and anywhere else you think this man would get the recognition he deserves. Please Tweet this Post as often as you like because the message is clear and present to all that is important to America.
